How bad is my team?

Postby The Knights » Tue Mar 18, 2008 12:09 am

How's my team look? I'm trying to make something out of a Yahoo Auto-draft gone horribly wrong.

Im trying to find who yahoo took for you in the first 2 rounds but cant figure it out.

Not a good sign :-b

Your pitching staff is very good though. Beckett,Hamels,Harang,Haren,Papelbon,Nathan,Rivera

Id try deal 2 of your starters and one of your closers to try and upgrade that offence.

What are the top players available on the WW???

Mine if you can:

I really like your pitching, I would also definitely deal. Your outfield has some good potential but you'll have to sure things up by trading.

i think that's exactly what you have to do....shop the WW to see what's available....you have some good young hitters, the problem is you can't really use those guys as trade bait for a legitimate 1st or second rounder unless you package like a 2 for 1 deal...keep vigilant at the WW....good luck

Your team will be hurting for power, particularly in the outfield. I'd try to shop a SP and a RP for a bat.

Your team dreams of power, and the only solution is a 2 for 1 deal with your starters to haul in something. If you manage to deal one of your RPs, try to pick up Sherril which is pitching very good in Spring. Pay attention to him :)

What do you think of this offer?

I give up Papelbon & Griffey for Matt Holliday. I hate giving up my favorite teams closer and actually holding onto the Evil Empire's closer Rivera but I don't think that would be a good trade.

Does that sound fair or am I giving too much? or Not enough?
